The Green Bay Packers are cutting ties with wide receiver Robert Ferguson. The Packers told Ferguson they're trying to trade him, but if that's unsuccessful, Ferguson would be released.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the team is currently in discussions with several teams about a deal.
Ferguson's base salary is around $1.8-million. If he's traded, the Packers would be responsible for the remaining $700,000 of his prorated signing bonus. If Ferguson is released, that $700,000 would count against next years cap.
